Me too!! I love these guys. The shrimp won't stop remodeling their little pile of sand.

You'll probably need a fish that can stand up for itself since the clowns and six line have had time establish territory. You could do a couple of blue reef chromis. Or an orchid or purple dottyback. Maybe a couple of cardinals.

Those are great fish, you say a couple, I could have that many fish in my tank?

What about a mandarin? I just got back from the lfs and saw one. Really cool fish.

mandarins require a established tank of a year or so
tons of pods till you train him to eat frozen

Fair enough, I also think I want a fish that is more of a mid to top level swimmer to make my tank more active.

I wouldn't suggest a mandarin at this time. Chromis are really active middle of the tank swimmers. I have blue- green because I couldn't find any blue at the time, but I think the blue reef ones are prettier IMO.
In my 30g, I have:
1 yellowheaded jawfish
1 Firefish
1 half black angel
1 occ clown
1 chalk bass
1 honey-red chromis

And my water parameters are fine and the fish get along fine without any aggression. I've never had hair algae or cyano. I do have an AC 70 and an ac30 on there, though. And about 35-40# LR. So, lots of filtration. And I'm good about doing PWCs. So, if you have really good filtration and keep up on regular PWCs, then yes, you can do about 5-6 small fish.

This is what I was thinking, and doesn't fill the column I am looking to fill with activity.

I have 30 lbs of LR and I am starting my fuge next week. Would you say chromis are my best bet?

Chromis are good fish and swim around a lot if its activity you're looking for. I like my chromis.
